Keep it down now, voices carry...

Yesterday I posted an audio post. People seemed to like it. I was a little surprised. I had done it a couple of times before, but it was a long time ago before many people were visiting the site, I guess.

I was a little taken aback at the comments I got saying I had a nice voice. I assume ya'll were just being polite and were looking for something to comment on. I don't really care for my voice. I've had people before say it's nice, but I can never understand why. Although I think I read somewhere that your voice never sounds the same to you as it does to other people. I can't remember why. I can't remember a lot of things.

But it gave me an idea. I'll do another audio post if you tell me what you want me to do.

Sing a song?
Read a poem?
Tell a joke?
Talk with an accent?
Make funny noises?
Talk dirty?
Curse like a sailor?
Read stock quotes?
Something else?

Let me know in the comments about what you would like me to do. Or let me know if you would prefer I forget the whole thing LOL. I'll take the 5 or so most popular suggestions and next week I'll put up a poll (once I figure out how to) and let people vote. And then I'll do it.

This could be a great idea, or a lame disaster.

Oh baby, I'll do anything...

You had to imagine me doing that last line all breathy and plaintive.

Hmmm...maybe it's better if you don't.

Perhaps something from the Godfather movies? Or saying what's on you mind after a drinking binge? I'm also digging what shirley said.

Blogger Stacy The Peanut Queen said...

I think you should sing "Henry the 8th" in a cute little British accent. While naked, of course...;)

I am jumping aboard the naked singing ban wagon.

Nunya--I'm not THAT talented!

Nunya--A little Marilyn Monroe, eh?

Blogarita--Naked weather? "The temperature is rising...and so am I!"

Jin--Makes no sense, does it? :)

Sherry--You wouldn't say that if you heard me sing...

Detroiter--I don't drink, but I can certainly quote The Godfather!

Stacy--Why does everyone want me to ba naked? It's audio, kids! LOL

Til Tuesday....Hey, it was just formally announced yesterday they're making a Movie out of the ABBA musical, Mamma Mia....Why don't you sing: Mamma Mia!

9:11 AM  
Blogger Ginnie said...

How 'bout if I just go with the consensus. Does that sound like a cop-out?

10:22 AM  
Blogger beadinggalinMS said...

I don't care what you say as long as you use the *breathy* voice.

10:40 AM  
Blogger Big Pissy said...

Something by ABBA would be fun....

or I don't know....with your voice....maybe...Rap?

whatever it is, I know it'll be fabulous!

hmmm, what about immitating how others (like stars) talk???

11:07 AM  
Blogger Stacy The Peanut Queen said...

Why do we want you naked when you do whatever it is you're going to do?

'Cause were pervs, that's why.

And don't act like you didn't already know that! ;)

11:34 AM  
Blogger Tracy said...

Those are all great ideas! But I'd go for Shirley's idea. Sing Happy Birthday, Mr. President, while naked. then Henry the 8th is a good choice too!!

Sing a song
Make it simple to last
Your whole life long
Dont worry that its not
Good enough for anyone
Else to hear
Just sing, sing a song

Can I sing wiht you! I'm good at Happy Birthday Mr President...! :)
ps: If you want some Kinder, e-mail me... I'll send you some... HeeHee.

1:24 PM  
Blogger Mr. Fabulous said...

Nanuk--Is that some sort of weird Canadian song? :)

Jkirlin--I'm not sure the blogging world is ready for that!

Matt--Good idea, I sound JUST like ABBA *eyeroll*

Ginnie--Yes, but for you, I will let it slide!

Beady--Do I make you horny, baby? LMAO

Pissy--Rap? Word up, G-Money!

Jin--I do a great Marcel Marceau!

Stacy--Well, I knew YOU were a perv! :)

Tracy--Or I could sing Henry the 8th in a breathy voice...

Mimi--Gee thanks, I am gonna have that in my head the whole afternoon now...

MO--We can do a duet! I appreciate the kinder offer, but I don't want to deprive you of yours...

Your voice sounds different to you because you hear the vibration of it in your skull, whereas others experience your voice that way.

And if you're gonna sing (which seems an odd choice), it should be Long Cool Woman In a Black Dress.

6:22 PM  
Blogger Some Girl said...

Singing sounds like the majority....naked of course. How about singing the song "I touch myself"? I can send you the lyrics if you need it. LOL

7:05 PM  
Blogger Saur♥Kraut said...

Just talk randomly! But if that doesn't work, go with Shirley's suggestion...

Sing "I'm too sexy." Naked.

"My humps" isn't Canadian, it's a song by the Black-Eyed Peas. You don't know "My humps"? You smokin' crack, dude, or wha'?

I've changed my mind. I'm with Nanuk. Sing "My humps." Naked.

7:53 PM  
Blogger Mr. Fabulous said...

Anne--That's it! That's what I read, that it vibrates in your skull. You're a friggin' genius!

Some Girl--I love that song!

Saur--I can do random anytime. But if that's what the people want...

Anon--I tell the dog story, I'm a dead man!

Dixie--Forgive my ignorance! But I can't sing a song I don't know! LOL

Blogger Me said...

They're all so polite. Talk dirty, baby...
AND swear like a sailor....
But I expect to hear Mrs. Fab chortling in the background because otherwise it's just kind of creepy.

I see a lot of votes for naked singing, reading or whatever, do they realize that we can't see you? Don't get me wrong, I am right up there with you talking dirty NAKED, so you will have to find a way of doing it with visual effects...

Things I would like you to do on the audio:

1.Belch out Mary Had A Little Lamb

2.Read a Chinese take out menu employing your best Chinese accent

3. Announce the time "At the tone it w/b 3:41am"

4. Sing a Johnny Cash song

5. Read all the listings for the letter "X" in your local phone directory

6 Make a call to 911 reporting that you can't stop farting and request an ambulance to take you to the hospital

If you need more, just ask.

Lemurs yes that's it- talk dirty like a lemur- naked.

All these requests to see you naked. You're going to have to get a webcam.

Me--Oh sure, like you wouldn't eat creepy up with a spoon!

FCL--I've heard about you French Canadians...I guess it's true :)

Marty--What would I do without you, my friend?

Peebugg--Can you loan me one of your copies? :)

Anne--You're such a sheep :)

Erin--I'm not sure you guys could handle lemur voices!

Kentucky Girl--It was the best of times, it was...oh wait, wrong book...

Tricia--If I were show up naked on this site, traffic would plummet, believe me!

Lorraine--Why WOULD anyone leave a cake out in the rain?
